HopArts Studio Trail is my favorite Fall weekend...not only because its so much fun to see old friends and fellow artists from around South County RI- seeing a little less of them since I moved my most of the time home to Providence last Fall- but because its' just a blast to be part of why people love New England in the Autumn.
Picture this: Peak foliage weekend, a drive in small town rural RI, air dry and crisp, pumpkins and apples everywhere, and 36 artists' studios to ramble through...artists demonstrating outdoors, inside, the warm smells of mulled cider...perhaps the hint of an old dance tune on the breeze...
and then you see it: the perfect holiday gift thing for your Aunt Madge. Next stop sews up the presents for nieces and nephews..and so on, down the road from Richmond to Hopkinton...
